This simple Lemon Kale recipe is my wife’s favorite.  She has withdrawals (which seems like a fabrication…but it’s true).  It’s so simple and such a tasty way to have this amazing leafy green.

Author: Ryan Chapman
Servings : 4

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch kale fresh, see notes
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice fresh squeezed
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Rinse the kale and then remove the stems from the leaves. Discard the stems or use for another purpose. Chop the kale leaves coarsely
  • Add a small amount of water to a medium pot that you can fit with a steamer basket. Bring the water to a boil and then insert the steamer basket.
  • Add the kale to the basket and cover and steam for 5-7 minutes.
  • Add the steamed kale to a large bowl and add the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix well and serve as a side dish or snack.

Notes

NOTE 1:  A "bunch" of kale is a bit vague, but in most stores, it's about 1 lb of kale or 5-7 large stalks tied together.
NOTE 2:  You can steam the kale any way you wish.  If you have a microwave steamer and wish to use it, that's fine.
